“Excellent show and venue”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We have been to see the Legends show many times when it was on at the Central Pier. We have also been to the Sands venue a few times. The merging of the two is an ingenious idea. The Sands venue is an excellent place with friendly staff and brings a touch of class to Blackpool.. The Legends show, as always, is excellent. I agree with so many other comments that Leeanne Fury is a star in her own right. She can do solos and duets with any act. The show we saw was with Elton John, Freddie Mercury, Buddy Holly and Neil Diamond. All acts were 1st class. We look forward to visiting next year and booking seats at the Sands again.

“World Class Show”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

After watching the first show earlier in the year, we wanted to return to see the second show. Again we were treated to an amazing night of 'world class' entertainment.
The Sands venue is superb, drinks are reasonably priced and the show is fantastic value for money.
The guy who performed as 'Elton John' was amazing and sounded just like him.
Freddie Mercury rocked the audience and Neil Diamond had me swaying and clapping in my seat :-)
Great to see and hear more of Leanne Fury and once again an unmissable show that could hold it's own anywhere in the World!!... A MUST SEE!!

“Shame about the food!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We decided to pay for a table and eat at Sands - big mistake! Such a shame because the staff were really nice and the show was excellent.

“blown away”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Went 1st September to see Robbie, Adele, Blues Brothers and Elvis.

I was expecting something akin to caravan park entertainment and was left absolutely gobsmacked!!

Ive been to Vegas twice and seen the big glitzy million dollar shows and also experienced the "Big Elvis" at Bills gambling hall and thought I had heard the closest living thing to the king.

All four acts were awesome but Elvis stole the show for me. If you love Elvis this guy will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up!!

Fabulous venue, with a lot of money spent and really great staff. A truly winning combination for a great night out thoroughly recommended and will be going back in a few weeks to enjoy it again!!
